Mass of an object possessing kinetic energy is low compared to the body under rest.

The centrifugal force is acting towards the centre of the earth not away from it. There is nothing to do with the centrifugal force. Its about the gravity changes, the value of the accl. Due to gravity decreases thus the weight decreases.

Velocity increase mass decrease.

Good explanation @Akshay.

Basically, it can be said that.

If the speed of rotation of earth increases so will the centrifugal force, which will try to nullify gravity.

Awesome. I would like to know where the weight of body remains same on earth.

In W = Mass * Acceleration.

How does weight of the body would decreases, when rotation increases. The gravitational force also increases. As W & g. Directly proportional. So, please tell me how does weight of the body decreases?

Mass of earth decreases as velocity increases so gravity also decreses.
